This nursing resume template is designed to make it easy for nurses and other healthcare professionals to bring attention to the qualifications and experiences that are most relevant and important in the nursing profession.
The Areas of Expertise section in the summary of the nursing resume template is the perfect technique for including and showcasing qualifications that are especially important. The Key Strengths section provides a really useful and flexible format for calling out the accomplishments and experiences that are likely to appeal to your prospective employer, regardless of where they appear in your background.
Page two includes a testimonial box that can be used to provide a quote that someone has written about you, speaking to your strengths and accomplishments. Try looking through past performance evaluations to find material for this section. Another good place to find an excerpt to use here is in reference letters that a past employer has written for you. Or, you could ask a past employer or coworker to write a testimonial specifically for the purpose of including it in your nursing resume template.
The graphic and color choices were also strategically chosen to communicate the image of a healthcare professional. Color psychology tells us that the color blue, for example, conveys brand traits such as trustworthiness, tranquility, dependability, and empathy. Green conveys brand traits including calmness, vitality, health, and safety. All of these are traits valued in nursing professionals.
But, like all our templates, you can easily change the color of the nursing resume template with just a couple of mouse clicks, and instructions are included when you purchase any template.
